Talk Like My Mother

Talk Like My Mother

 

Someday,

One day,

I want to talk like my mother.

To speak her exact dialect.

To influence others

As she did and does.

 

Someday,

One day,

I want to think like my father.

To comprehend his ways.

To influence others

As he did and does.

 

Someday,

One day,

I want to be like my ancestors.

To walk their learned paths.

To live my life with impact

As they did and still do.

-M.L. Wright
